Top Things Your Establishment Must Do During COVID-19
The mayor of Illinois has officially closed down dine-in options for all restaurants and bars in the state through May 30th. Although we don’t know when businesses will officially open back up, the team at BASSET On The Fly believes that it’s always best to be prepared and stay on top of your business for the time being.
While many restaurants and bars are in limbo outside of deliveries and curbside pickup, there are still some things your location can do in order to keep your business running smoothly. Here are some proactive steps you can take to keep your location out of any trouble during and after the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Review Your Insurance Policy
Things are going to be different for all industries after the pandemic mandates are lifted. So, now is the best time to reach out to your insurance agent and discuss how your policy can help keep your company covered when you open back up.
Not only should you pay attention to your business liability, but you should also look into some of the other “what ifs” that could occur after this initial shut down. Some of the other areas you need to ask about include:
- Short-term disability insurance
- Business interruption insurance
- General medical insurance changes
Check Your BASSET Certification
If your establishment sells alcohol, your employees are required to hold a valid BASSET certification. Although current times may have some of your valued staff at home, you can take advantage of it by singing employees in need of a certification up for an online course.
At BASSET On The Fly we offer affordable online on-premise and off-premise certifications option that allows you to not only register employees for our program but also keep track of the validity of current certifications. Never miss an expiration date again with the help of BASSET On The Fly.
Be Mindful of Current Delivery and Pickup Guidelines
Due to temporary circumstances stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, licensed restaurants and bars can take advantage of curbside pickup and delivery options for alcohol. This is pretty huge for a state that recently legalized Happy Hour specials five years ago. However, through this newfound opportunity, remember to follow these guidelines:
- Do not deliver or drop off to a customer that is under 21
- All takeout and deliveries of alcohol must be contained in unopened bottles
